Art Work Gallery
Here is the gallery of our very own, Markus Paetzold. All pieces have been created by him. He had an 3-year apprenticeship and received a Master's in Porcelain Painting in Germany. Along with that, he has created pieces for friends and worked on BMW motorcycles and cars with BMW Gohring in Germany.
Tested out a few different fonts with this one. Painted freehand. Something simple like this would cost about $25 for either font.
Isle of Man-inspired design while the Isle of Man TT races were going on. All painted freehand. It's a little complex so it would cost around $150.
Inspired by the late Frank Frazetta's piece "The Death Dealer." Markus painted this in 1984 on the back of a denim vest using Deka fabric paints. Because of the immense detail, something like this would cost around $275.
This pin-up was inspired by artwork from Dave Stevens. Remember, everything is painted free hand and it takes time to add all the details. Because of that, something like this would cost $300.
Couldn't quite figure out the flash. Whatever is black and silver was already there and everything else was hand painted. It is a bit crooked, but that's the beauty of free hand painting; it's a one-off piece of art work and will never be totally perfect. This piece would cost about $60.
The Isle of Man triskelion on a half-shell helmet. It's difficult to photograph because of the helmet's curvature. Was originally going to add more color but stared at it for a couple minutes and decided it looked pretty cool like this. Cost would be about $25 for something like this.
Here's a Roemer helmet that Markus painted in 1983. Everything is hand painted including the space ship! It's the most intricate piece in the collection so something like this would cost $200.
Another Isle of Man-inspired half-shell helmet. This one is leather which is really nice to paint on. Includes the triskelion and the outline of the Isle of Man TT race course. This will cost you about $50.
These pictures show the progress of a piece we're creating for a Hair and Make-Up Artist, Tough Love: MPD. The left and center pictures showcase the earlier stages of the piece while the right picture shows it with more detail. She's coming together nicely!
